Was there a tactical reason behind that? Is there a higher moment of surprise when you realize you're facing a female army, so you don't take them serious enough?
From one of the links I posted

Their history traces as far back as the 17th century, and theories suggest they started as a corps of elephant hunters who impressed the Dahomey King with their skills while their husbands were away fighting other tribes. A different theory suggests that because women were the only people permitted in the Kingís palace with him after dark, they naturally became his bodyguards.
